E, the Class of 1914,
dedicate this volume
To H. H. KEEP
as a means of express-
ing our appreciation of
the excellent work that he
has done for the school.
FTER a lapse of one year, Volume X takes it place fir
the stately files of the preceding Spectators. The re-
turn was brought about by the Class of '14 in order-
that in after years a printed record may be had in every home..
This book is published not only as a record and memorial,
but for the purpose of bringing the community into closer
touch with the school.
It is a pleasure to acknowledge the ready generosity with
which so many friendly critics and teachers have given us
their help and advice in this compilation. We wish to extend
our thanks to all those who have aided us, and especiallv to
the business men for their invaluable aid in the advertising
department; to the students in the Literary, Art and Sub-
scription departments, and to Mr. Long for his contribution
to the Literary section.

/TT CHOOLS today are different from what they were when our fathers
went to school, judging from the hearsays we receive. The cchoois:
as told about by our fathers, were rude and impractical. The building-
in which school was held was made of logs and mud. What would happen
if we would have to go to school in the same kind of buildings in which they
were taught? Suppose we had rone to school for eight years in a modern
school building and then we w r ere changed and placed m one of those log
school houses, what would happen? Answer that for yourself. Then there
is an improvement in the building.
Another improvement is in the methods of teaching. In the earlv days,
we are told, the school master was guarded by a "big, heavy, birch rod and a
long, slim, pointed, dunce cap," but now he is fortified by the good will and
loyalty of the pupils. We can also remember that not long ago "Dont's"
were used profusely. As we pupils entered the school room, a large, staring
and glaring "DON'T" was the first word we read upon the board. It was
the first word that we heard the first day we entered a school room. As we
can recall, this "don't" was followed by a great number of articles stating
what Ave could not do. In fact, by so many that we hardly knew what we
could do. But now as w T e enter the school room we see the "DON'T" has,
been erased and with it went the restrictions, and in its place we see, "DO
RIGHT." If this is not a sign of improvement, there is no such word in the,

As I reflect on virtues seen
So plainly — as their heads they raise —
Our own dear boys of seventeen.
Twenty-two Freshmen, perfect all,
In the play of life will soon appear;

Each filling his place without a fear.
Boys of whom we're justly proud,
Of whom trite sayings are not allowed
For whom we'll fight and honor too —
Yes, boys, we're truly proud of you.

Course of 0tuoy
Since the new laws regulating Industrial Education were enacted by the
General Assembly in 1913, the course of study for the Angola "High School
has been in a state of transition. Marked changes are being made to have the
course comply with these laws and State Board requirements whic.fr are flex-
ible enough to permit adjustment to local conditions. As the predominant
interests of this community are agricultural, the course is designed with such
interests in mind. The greatest change will occur in the ninth year from
which Latin and Algebra will be transferred to tenth year. But with all the
changes contemplated, the requirements will remain just as rigorous as
heretofore. Thirty-two credits will still be required for graduation 'from the
Angola High School. Of these thirty-two credits, at present eighteen are re-
quired. A credit means satisfactory work in one subject recited five periods
per week for one semester. The course in force at present, and under which
tiif class of 1914 is graduating, is outlined below.
Language is fundamentally the basis of all education. Without a fair-
knowledge of his mother tongue, it is impossible for any person to become
a clear thinker or to make himself understood. Hence the work in English
is emphasized in the High School ccurse. Four years are offered, three years-
of which are required for graduation. For those who take a minimum of the
foreign language requirement, four years of English are necessary to-
The work in English consists of the study of composition and rhetoric
and the reading of English classics together with the history of American-
and English literatures in the fourth year. In addition to the critical study
of classics in class, a number of books are required for home reading, upon
which the pupils are examined. Memorizing choice selections and class de-
bates are features of the English course. Beyond the regular work in Eng-
lish, a course of technical English Grammar is offered during the last semes-
ter of the Senior year.
For the enrichment of the student's life and the development of his
moral nature, no better subject is found than History. Besides giving one
a picture of the progress of the human race, History affords the best basis
for development of the reasoning powers. A further reason why it should
claim a prominent place in the school program, is the basis it furnishes for
the solution of governmental problems with which the student must come in
contact. In the Angola high school three years of history are offered, one
year of which is required for graduation. The history work consists of one
year in Greek and Roman History, one year in Modern, one-half year of
United States History and one-half year of Civics. The work is given in the
order just indicated. The work in Civics is studied from the standpoint of
present day governmental problems. To make it as practical as possible, the
students use the Chicago Record Herald and Literary Digest in addition
to the regular text.
In this age of demands for practical results we tend to measure every-
thing by a commercial standard. We ask what it will yield in dollars and
cents. Now, material results are not always the most practical, for they may
be too transitory. On the other hand, therefore, permanent qualities of mind
=and character must be considered. For this reason foreign languages are
given a prominent place in the course of study. The foreign languages, when
seriously considered, give discipline of mind and thought, power of expres-
sion, information, outlook, the sense of the noble and beautiful in literature.
Two languages, Latin and German, are offered in the Angola High
School. Pupils on entering have the option of either language, which must
be pursued two years for graduation. The first year's work in Latin consists
of a study of -forms, derivatives and constructions; in the second year,
Caesar's Commentaries are studied ; the third year is spent in Cicero's Ora-
tions. Composition is given one day each week in the second and third year.
The first year of German is devoted to the study of declensions and con-
jugations together with reading of easy prose. The direct method is used.
In the second year, the work is the reading of a number of German classics
together with composition. The recitation work of this year is conducted in
German. There is no third year class this year, but a course is outlined in
"which. the language is studied from a literary point of view. In addition to
the above work a German club meets one hour each week from 7 o'clock to
8 o'clock. The purpose of the club is to develop the ability to speak the lan-
guage. The program is given in German.
In order to meet the demands of the world successfully, one must be
■able to cope intelligently with his physical environment. A knowledge of
various phases of nature is essential to give man this ability. . To w r ait until
one has reached the High School to begin his or her study of natural
phenomena, is putting the work too late in the student's life. Such sciences
as Nature Study, Geography and Physiology are given in the grades. On
'the other hand, to stop science study with the grades, is giving the child too
meager knowledge of his surroundings. The course of Science in this school
is intended to broaden the child's view and to make his environment his
Four years of Science are offered, of which two years are required. The
Science offered is one year each of Physiography, Botany, Physics and Chem-
istry. Of these either Physiography or Botany fills one year's requirement
and Physics or Chemistry makes out the second year's work. The majority
of the students elect Physiography and Chemistry. The Botany is largely
agricultural ; and the other sciences are applied to problems of home, farm
Probably the only real test of formal logic that the majorit) of people
get is from the study of Mathematics. While there are some other bran :hes
of study that furnish more wholesome means for the development of the
reasoning powers in general, there is no high school subject which demands
such exactitude and logical arrangement of statements to reach conclusions
as Mathematics. Again, by its use of symbolism, Mathematics lays the
foundation for a higher plane of thinking. Whenever the mind is aide to
reason readily with symbols, it is then capable of doing logical thinking.
And logical thinking is only common sense organized.
In Mathematics the course covers three years of work, of which one year
each is given to Algebra, Plane Geometry and Commercial Arithmetic. Two
years of Mathematics are required of all students for graduation.
Manual Training has gained a permanent place in public school work-
Both from psychological and commercial reasons it is a necessary part of
every child's training. It makes a strong appeal to the boys because of its
mechanical and practical nature. From a psychological standpoint it is
valued because it furnishes an opportunity for the training of the hancL
Again, the muscles are the great clarihers of thought. We have heretofore
offered training for the heart and head but neglected the hand. The training
of the three is the modern educational ideal.
Three years' work is outlined : two being given in the seventh and eighth
grades and one year in the high school. In the high school wood work only
is given ; in the grades both wood work and sewing are given. In the seventh:
and eighth grades the work is required ; in the high school it is elective. lit
the high school the wood work is open to both boys and girls. In addition
two years of cooking will be offered next year. The sewing is outlined in
accordance with the National System of Domestic Science ; the wood work
in accordance with the Progressive System of Manual Training.
Since the ideals of education have risen to the height that calls for the
development of the whole individual, any course of study that ignores or
neglects the emotional life of the child, is seriously defective. No one can:
deny that the emotions do form a large factor in determining the conduct of
man ; and that unless the emotions are properly directed they become a
damaging force in society. It is only when the emotions are centralized into
pure sentiments that they become positive forces for good. Music has thair
power of centralization of emotions about pure sentiments, for which reason?
it naturally becomes a fundamental part of a course of study.
In the High School the work in Music is fitted to the different stages
of advancement of the students." To those who have never pursued a sys-
tematic study of music in the grades, an elementary course comprised of the
rudiments is planned and required. In addition two other courses are given,.
one in fundamentals, the other in chorus work. Admission to the chorus
work presupposes ability to read music readily. For studying the master-
pieces from an interpretative point of view and for developing an apprecia-
tion for them, a Victrola has been added to the department.
Drawing* comes into courses of study for various reasons. Among these
two reasons justify its presence in a public school course. It is a means of
■expression that has been employed time nut of mind; and it is a valuable aid
in the cultivation of the aesthetic sense in man and woman. At no time does
this aesthetic sense develop so rapidly as in the high school period of child-
hood. It is the time when the child is grasping for every means of expres-
sing itself; it is also the time when beautiful "aircastles" are built and the
dreams of future glory assert themslves. Drawing is one means affording
-an opportunity to put these in tangible form.
While it is not the aim of the course in Drawing in this High School
to make artists, yet it is one intention of this department to give the pupil
"?. knowledge of the means by which an artist portrays his meaning in pencil
and color. The permanent object is to teach the student to see and to ex-
press what he sees. The course includes lettering, perspective and landscape
work. The media used are pencil, charcoal, crayon and paint. The work is
-"required in the first year and is elective in the other years.

The Senior Class of 1914 is composed of nineteen members, eight oi
whom started together in the first grade under Miss Parish. The original
eight are, Agness Pollock, Blanche Coy, Bernice Ramsay, Frances Junod,
Genevra Bixler, Eber Jeffery, Alan Parsed and Donald Sheldon.
We were joined in the third grade by Samuel Pence; in the fourth by
Harry Gilmore ; in the sixth by Ruth Miller ; in the seventh by Florence Dy-
gert and Adabelle Walcott, and in the eighth grade by Zema Crampton.
In the first year of High School our number was increased to fifty-four ,
As Freshmen we were very industrious, and had the honor of being called
the smartest Freshmen class that every entered the A. H. S.
In the Sophomore year our troubles began, and many of our number
dropped out. After overcoming our Freshman timidity, we began to write
notes and whisper. As a result of our hilarity, our deportment dropped and
we were given the pleasure of taking all the examinations.
We had grown wiser by the time we reached our Junior year, and we
worked more diligently, since we were nearing the goal of our desire.
Our Senior year has been a very busy one. We have accomplished
much in our school work, and aside from this we have found time to engage
in many social functions. W 7 e are sure that this has added much to the
pleasure of our school year.
Without the constant help and interest of our teachers, we could never
have been successful in graduating. They have ever been ready to help lis
over the difficult places. We appreciate this friendly care and watchfulness
and feel sure that their influence will go with us through life.
Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of the twentieth century,
the third month, and twenty-fourth day, during the reign of Luther, son of
Martin, in the house of Piatt, in the town of Angola, as we, Ruth, the daugh-
ter of William, and Agness, the daughter of Morton, were among the captives
of the Senior class, that visions- of the future were revealed to us through an
opening of the mist which separates the Present and Future.
And a brightness was about it and out of the midst thereof came the
likenesses of seventeen living creatures: and this was their appearance:
Like unto the bow r that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the
likeness of Genevra Bixler as she appeared as Leonora in Verdi's "II Trova-
And lo, another figure came out of the midst, and we beheld Blanche
Coy, "ably" performing the duties of a housewife in a small mining town in
And it came to pass as we gazed oh this scene that the picture dimmed
and another appeared in which we beheld the senate chamber with all the?
congressmen gathered therein, barkening to a great oration by the president
of the senate, Eber Jeffery.
And lo, as we sat spellbound, staring at the wonders which were being
wrought, behold there was a commotion in the crowd and Zema Crampton
came forth followed by Helen Rummel whom she introduced as her private
secretary. "Verily, I say unto you, women shall have equal rights with
men," she spake, and was again lost in the midst thereof.
Then behold there came forth from their midst, two people and took
their places in the opening between Present and Future. Thus it was that
we perceived Donald Sheldon, who sitteth with his pallette and brushes,
painting a picture of his charming model, Esther Chard.
Thus it was these great revelations came to us and we sank into onr
chairs and sighed heavily, but lo, we were aroused by the sound of beautiful
music from the direction of our vision. We gazed, and lo, out of the group
beheld the slender figure of a maiden playing the sw r eet strains of Wilhelm
Tell upon a violin. Behold this was Adabelle Walcott, the class violinist.
And lo, we heard a voice in the wilderness, saying, "Hasten thee into
the nearby village and there ye will find a beloved one, Florence Garrett, and
a crowed of pupils shall be round about her harkening to the words which she
imparts to them.
And again we looked and saw a great and golden light in the distance,
and as we drew near we beheld a grove of oranges, and in the midst was
Alan. Parsed directing the plucking of the fruit.
And there was at that time another figure who appeared and spake:
"Lo, I, Samuel A. Pence, am editor of the San Francisco Call, and it has
come to pass that Bernice Ramsay, the well known illustrator, is holding
forth in our Art Department."
And it came to pass while we were gazing we discerned a ship mid-wa\
of the sea, and lo, we beheld thereon our classmate, Florence Dygert, on her
way to the Philippines, being still in ([nest of the one of her choice.
Now once again there came forth out of the mist a familiar figure in tin-
person of Harry Gilmore, who being of a mechanical turn of mind, had found
a position as chauffeur for Vincent Astor.
Farther on we beheld a home wherein cur friend. Frances Junod, v
happily about her domestic duties.
And lo, as these visions were slowly fading f rom our memories, v. : j
could dimly discern the faces of Lloyd Wilson and Rose Kohl, quietly settled
down -at their beautiful country home. At this time the opening in the mist
closed and we were permitted to see no further into the future.

History, broadly speaking", concerns itself with only the most important
events of the human race. The history of the world is largely that of its
battles, since might still makes right, and the triumphs of the conqueror
prove the survival of the fittest.
The class of 191 5 has been truly militant, having waged three years of
civil war, the ammunition being chiefly B. B. shot, paper wads and erasers.
Let us rapidly pass over this period of our existence, when we were all
monkeys, and also the semi-barbaric age, when we were enveloped in the
darkness of the grades to the beginning of the Renaissance period which
began on the fourth day of September, nineteen hundred and eleven. On
that day the green grocer's wagon delivered at the door of the High School,
fifty-five bewildered freshmen, no cold storage products, but the real thing,
all green and guaranteed not to fade.
Although a large number of our class have fallen by the wayside, we
we have inherited six heirlooms, chiefly from former classes, so that we now
In our Freshman year we organized our class after many embarrassing
situations. We also established a successful postoffice, but that was soon
discovered by some of the faculty and was annihilated to our great sorrows
The next year we felt more dignified and watched with pleasure the
mistakes of the Freshmen. By this time we had realized that there was
something else to do besides gaze around, so we began studying.
This year our weakest point has been deportment, as w T e all have been
inclined to whisper. Although we suffered those few days of examination,
we enjoyed ourselves the other part of the year. Our greatest aim now is to
become Seniors, and although our class is small, we are determined to be
the best class of all..

Dean, will you and Ralph act as pall bearers?" (Grand shuffle.)
After a few mild moments of anxious waiting, the procession moves
slowly up the hall with Miss Steva as the only mourner. We all remain
silent and sit with bowed heads while the trio enter and place the dark,
dismal box upon the groaning table.
Miss Steva slams back the roof, puts on a black wheel and turns to the
solemn gathering'. At this pitiful point she gives us a short, snappy synopsis
of some sad, sentimental story. Then, after several minutes of continuous
cranking, she releases the creaking clutch, slams down the large lid and
away we go. The orchestra grinds off several mad measures of melodious,
mystifying music and the sweet soprano soloist steps spasmodically upon
the scene. She softly sings several sentimental strains in German, hesitates
for an inspiring instant and then pours forth a cloud-burst of irritative
Italian or something sadly similar.
Everyone leans forward in sickening suspense. Mr. Witsaman's hair
mounts to erect position, (mirabile dictu.) But still she soars on louder
and higher. The terrified top flies furiously from the miserable machine and
she gains her freedom in a frenzy. Up ! Up ! Up ! Piercing . But
have a heart ! Mr. Letts heroically rushes to the rescue, pushes the electric
bell and all is off.

Tell us not in compound numbers,
The Sophomore class was not a dream,
For the teachers' made us lumber
All day bus'ly writing themes.
School is real; School is earnest!
But we haven't reached the end
And the future years will teach us
Things, which now we ne'er contend.
Not enjoyments, worse than sorrow
Is our destined end or way,
But we hope that each tomorrow
Finds us better than today.
Days are long and lessons tiresome,
But our hearts are stout and brave;

Now here's to the sturdy Freshies,
Of the honored A. H. S.,
We're very strong in numbers,
We are forty-six or less.
The Seniors feel above us,
The Sophs and Juniors too,
But we don't care we're going some,
And know that we'll get through.
Some of us are rather green,
And some are over done,
But just the same we're getting there,
For I say we're goin' some.

Oh the noise those Seniors make,
And Mr. Letts says, "Watch the east side,"
And a pattern from them take.

Whether over done or green.

In the fall of 1906, sixty happy children entered the primary grades of
the Angola Public Schools, as pupils of Miss Parish. After a struggle that
has lasted nine years, we find only seven of the original number in the
Freshman class: Carlton Smith, DeLoss Goodale, Virgil Kundard, Letha
Rozell, Edna Spade, Martha Kankamp and Emily Wangh. Of this number.
only the three boys have remained continuously in the Angola schools. The
girls have spent a part of the time in various other places, but, like "bad
pennies," have returned to complete the course in Old A. H. S. At present
the Freshman Class numbers forty-four — twenty-six boys and eighteen girls.
As a class we do not boast of achievements "Minervian, Thespian or
Euterpean ;" we do not pretend to be even a "pretty pert set of youngsters.' 7
We are just a plain, ordinary lot, but Ave are daily striving to attain success
with our motto, "Perseverance Conquers All," as our guide.

Of all the classes in the school,
We are the largest and the best,
For with a mighty Eighth Grade Class,
Our old A. H. S. beats all the rest.
When we began work here last fall,
There were so many things to learn,
Of wars and dates and sums and all,
That most of us began to squirm.
Our Grammar surely makes us think,
For nouns and pronouns get turned round,
And parsing verbs makes all hearts sink,
And our brains, we fear, are not left sound.
Of our Miss Rempis we are proud,
She gave us aid all thro' the year.
We speak of her in tones aloud,
And wish that every one may hear.
Of musicians good we have a host,
Our work in Art makes Mrs. Fairfield start,
But of this we haven't time to boast,
When each class member does his part.
Now, Eighth Grade classmates, keep good cheer,
As the flying seasons come and go;
When you read the lines collected here,
May you help our class to prosper and grow.

Albert W. Wilcox — Bert to most of us
— has for the last seven years proved him-
self a most efficient custodian, and has
gained the friendship and esteem of every-
one connected with the school. Even the
birds, for which he has erected a fine bird
house, are included among 1 his friends. He
is always making little improvements in
and about the school house, such as win-
dow boxes and flower beds, and in numer-
ous other ways he has taken an active in-
terest in school life.
Mr. Wilcox is also a musician, playing
one of the important parts in Angola's well
known City Band. Several times he has
kindly favored the High School with a

Athletics is very essential to a complete education. Without it High
School life is comparatively dead to the majority of boys and girls. Many
students who would not otherwise finish the High School course are urged
on by athletics.
The body exerts a strong influence over the mind. While now and
then we find a brilliant intellect associated with a weak and sickly body, in
general, health and vigor of the body lead to a clear intellect. If athletics
is properly conducted it not only promotes physical development and good
morals, but it also creates enthusiasm in the school work.
A school without its athletic teams has no means of associating with
the adjoining schools and of becoming acquainted with the students.
The Athletic Association of the A. H. S. was not organized until late in
September. Several previous attempts had been made but the eligible mem-
bers failed to secure support and abandoned the idea. Later the Faculty
strongly encouraged organization and an athletic meeting was called. The
following officers were elected :
President Mr. George Letts
Vice-President Mr. Harry Gilmore
Secretary Miss Marjorie Kunkle
Treasurer Mr. Donald Sheldon
Student Manager Mr. Alan Parsell
The Athletic Association grew until it finally consisted of fifty or more
members. As the basket ball season was at hand, another meeting was soon
called for the purpose of securing the College gymnasium. A committee
was appointed for the purpose. The T. S. C. gymnasium was rented and
After some training, the first team was selected and played its opening
game with Albion. Xot being accustomed to such a slippery floor as the
Albion gymnasium had, the}- could not play to any advantage. Besides, it
was the first game for the A. H. S. team, and none of its members had
practiced any during the- previous year. Although Angola did not win,
the game proved to be an interesting and "slippery" one.
At the end of the first semester, some of the members did not have the
standard grades necessary 1o permit their staying on the team. This meant
that no more inter-scholastic games could be played, as there were not
enough players in practice to fill the vacancies. However, the practice was
continued at the gymnasium. At the end of the school year every one
thought that we had had a very profitable and enjoyable season of basket
This year the first tennis court was built on the school grounds by the
A. H. S. boys. Needless to say tennis was a popular game with everybody.
Outside of school hours, when the weather permitted, the courts were alive
with enthusiastic players. Many good games were enjoyed. When the
tennis season closed it was with deep regret that the nets were taken down
and the rackets and balls were laid aside.
HEARD IN THE HALLS
We have been constantly reminded that the halls arc no place to carry
on c; conversation, but where is there an A. H. S. student who can refrain
from talking? Members of the Spectator Staff have heard, among other
things: That Stanley Castell really looked at a girl this semester; that Mr,
Letts thinks some of joining the Odd Fellows; that Eber Jeffrey broke only
two beakers, a graduate and four test tubes in the experiment last week; that
Hale Miller expects to put on long trousers soon; that if all the sleep lost on
bob-load parties could be collected. Rip Van Winkle might return and pull
off another double decade snooze; that Lee Hirsch expects to become an as-
sociate member of the Class of 1914; that if the disinfectant (sheep-dip)
used in the school house is as good a germicide as the odor indicates, all
germs are a thing of the past ; that the girls taking- manual training have
learned the difference between a hammer and a saw ; that the Assembly
room floor should take the Keeley cure; that Lois Redding and Sam Brooks
occasionally chew gum; that the School Board is thinking of buying electric
fans to keep the ice in the radiators from thawing- next winter; that Ruth
Masters wears hair ribbons; that Augustine Williamson visits school once
in a while; that George Hendry , under the instruction of Miss Powell, is
learning to keep step to the music from the "Baby Grand ;" that Mr. Letts
is canvassing for subscription to the Ladies' Home Journal ; that the Latin
IV class is not crowded; that the patrons and pupils of the A. H. S. have
enjoyed the man}' pleasant social evenings and entertainments in the High
School Auditorium during the last term ; that Xell Brinkley is much in evi-
dence in the drawing classes ; that Edna Spade and Erwin Mast have entered
a foot race; that the boys are a luxury in the class of 1915; that Marjorie
Kunkle and Mildred Leininger were able to get to school once last winter
without masculine assistance ; that the new gym on the south side of the
school grounds will be completed and ready for use about Oct. 1, 1957; that
it is to be dedicated to the untiring efforts and support of the faculty and
school board of 1913 and 1914; that a King is more attractive to Beulah
Nichols than any other card in the deck ; that Russell Bair has a "Capital
Idee ;" that Prof. Keep is specializing in Outlines ; that the German Club is
strong for hard cider and Limburger cheese ; that the Victrola would be
more appreciated if we had less "War Cry" and more- rag-time ; that mem-
bers of the school board should have at least one child in the public schools ;
that the Sophomore girls have a corner on the Freshmen boys ; that George
Hendry, John Bryan and Virgil Kunderd are personally acquainted with the
principal characters of the New Testament ; that there have been some rather
fresh notes flying between a small Freshy and a certain Junior girl ; that
there are a few silly girls, even in the Senior class ; that the pupils and pat-
rons prefer the old system of grade cards; that the Senior class is weary of
being the victims of Prof. Piatt's experiments ; that

Although the High School has no literary organization, considerable
literary talent has been displayed this year. It was our desire to revive the
former custom of giving programs at regular intervals, at the High School,
but on account of the special work involved in putting out a Spectator, the
plan was abandoned. However, we hope that some form of literary work
will find a permanent place in the school curriculum.
The High School gave excellent programs at Thanksgiving and Christ-
mas, which were held in the Assembly room. ( )n February 13th, a patriotic:
entertainment was given by the High School and Grades, at the Opera
House. Two cantatas entitled, "A Meeting of Nations," and ''Our Flag, '*
and an operetta entitled, "The Origin of Our Flag," were given. An excel-
lent feature of the program was a flag drill by the students of the Seventh
and Eighth grades. The program was under the able supervision of Miss
Steva, our director in music, assisted by Gertrude Ingalls at the piano. The
proceeds, which were about ninety dollars, will go to the library fund.
Since the ideals of education have risen to the height that calls for the
development of the whole individual, any course of study that ignores or
neglects the emotional life of the child, is seriously defective. No one can
deny that the emotions do form a large factor in determining the conduct of
man; and that unless the emotions are properly directed they become a
damaging force in society. It is only when the emotions are centralized into
pure sentiments that they become positive forces for good. Music has that
power of centralization of emotions about pure sentiments, for which reason
it naturally becomes a fundamental part of a course of study.
In the High School the work in Music is fitted to the different stages
of advancement of the students. To those Avho have never pursued a sys-
tematic study of music in the grades, an elementary course comprised of the
rudiments is planned and required. In addition two other courses are given,
one in fundamentals, the other in chorus work. Admission to the chorus
work presupposes ability to read music readily. For studying the master-
pieces from an interpretative point of view and for developing an apprecia-
tion for them, a Yictrola has been added to the department.
By St. Clair VanAuken, 'i8.
On a bright summer's afternoon in the year of 19 — , two boys, Andy and
Billy Wildwood, aged sixteen and thirteen respectively, were walking to-
ward their home in Fairview, Mass. The two brothers had been to the town
of Centerville to see a large circus which was exhibiting there that day. On
account of the small size of Fairview, amusements of this kind never visited
it, so when the boys had seen the advertisements in the Centerville paper,
and the lurid posters, they decided to see that show at any cost. So on the
day of the event, they got up early, and after a hast}' breakfast, started on
their walk to the town of Centerville, for the Wildwoods did not own a horse.
They arrived there in time to see the parade, and in the afternoon they went
to see the show- After it was oevr at five o'clock they started to walk home,
and here we will now leave them to take up another part of the story.
Mr. Wildwood, the boys' father, was the cashier in the only bank that
Fairview had. At four o'clock he started to walk' home as was his custom,
stopping at the postoffice t<» get his mail, lie received one letter which he
opened and read. Idle writing, which was disguised, ran thus:
"If you will come to the old log house on the island in the
haunted swam]) you will learn something that will interest you.''
Signed, "A FRIEND."
Interested and puzzled, he went home, changed his coat, and told his
wife that he was going for a walk. Then he walked swiftly to the spot men-
tioned which was called "the haunted swamp" by the natives because of the
murders on this road which ran through a swamp. Mr. Wildwood made his
way along a road that was overgrown with grass, on account of its desertion,
till he came to an island of solid ground on which stood a vine covered log-
house. This log house had belonged to a miser wdio owned the land and who
had been murdered and robbed many years before. It was a very dreary and
lonely spot, but Mr. Wildw r ood walked up to the door and knocked.
At that moment a large man jumped from behind a tree and grabbed
Mr. Wildwood by the arms. Instantly more men came from the cabin and
grabbed him and dragged him into it. "Search him," said a man with a large
beard. They did this and in one of his coat pockets, found a note book, which
he had forgotten he had. He had not worn the coat since he had obtained
his position in the bank. He had then written down the combination to the
safe but had forgotten about it.
"Give that here," the man with the beard demanded. He opened it and
found on a page the thing which he sought, the combination !
"Here it is!" the man shouted. "It will save us a lot of trouble, to get it
so easily," he said.
"What does this mean?" angrily demanded Air. W'ildwood.
"It means," said the man, that we are going to borrow all the money
that the Fairview bank has on hand and without interest."
"Do you mean that you are going to rob the Fairview bank?'' said Mr.
"It does, and you are saving us the trouble of blowing off the safe (loots
by giving us the combination," replied the leader.
Returning to the two boys, we find that in an hour's time they had
traveled three miles and were at the forks of the road where the new road
branches off from the old haunted road.
"Let us go through the old haunted swamp," said Andy to Billy. "We
will save a mile or two if we do," w r as Billy's reply.
At this they started down the left fork of the road that led through the
haunted swamp. This swamp was about one and one-half miles in diameter
and the island was about in the center of the swamp. The swamp was a very
wet one, water actually covering most of the land so the small plat of dry
land was called "the island," by the natives. The road the boys were walk-
ing on was a corduroy and the water had, in places, washed most of the dirt
off the logs, hence it was very rough traveling. Many times the boys stum-
bled, because it was now getting dark. They finally began talking about the
mystery of the swamp, and Andy said : "They say in the village that people
who are here after dark can hear the men that killed the old miser, riding on
"Nonsense," replied Billy, who did not like the subject that his brother
had brought up.
Billy's contempt for ghosts was soon to be tested, for as they neared the
old log house they heard the sounds of galloping horses. In ordinary life,
Andy and Billy were brave enough but when they were concerned with things
supernatural they were like the woman who said: "I do not believe in ghosts
of course, but I am dreadfully afraid of them." As the sound grew nearer,,
the boys went behind a neglected, hedge to wait.
Returning to Mr. Wildwood : Soon after the robbers had received the
combination to the safe, the bearded man went over to an old washstand and
did something to his beard. He then turned around, with the beard in his
hand and as his face came into the circle of light, Mr. Wildwood gave a cry
that brought all the gang to their feet.
"Jim !" he cried in tone of voice that was sad yet joyous.
"I see that you recognize me," he said with a smile.
To make this part of the story clearer, we will tell of Mr. Wildwood's
early life. This man that he called Jim was a twin brother of his. They w r ere
born and reared in Maine till they reached the age of sixteen. Then Jim.
who was an adventure-loving boy, was expelled from school. Their father,
who was a Puritan in religion and manner, at this seeming disgrace, drove
the boy from home. As his home town was an Atlantic seaport, Jim shipped
on a vessel bound for the West Indies. After this his brother heard no more
of him until the Spanish-American war. Among the list of dead in an im-
portant battle was the name of James Wildwood, so the family gave him up
until the moment he revealed himself to his brother.
As Mr. Wildwood had been released on his promise not to try to escape^,
he arose and embraced his brother with true affection. "I thought you were
killed in the battle of — ," he said.
"I was only wounded, but as the reports were often mixed, I was put
down for dead," he said. "I suppose the family mourned me for dead, but J
don't suppose that father wasted many tears over me," he said with a touch
of his boyish manner.
In a few minutes Mr. Wildwood spoke again. "This is certainly too bad.
As soon as you rob the bank and set me free, I shall have to give evidence
that will convict you."
"Not so, my dear brother; as soon as we rob the Fairview bank we are
all going' to take a ride to Canada, and you are going with us and have a
share of the loot."
"But think of my family, my reputation, and my disgrace," said Mr.
"Too bad, too bad ; but it is the decree of fate," grimly returned his
Then Jim sent the men after the horses, and it was their return that the
From their hiding place the boys saw a man come from the cabin with
a lantern in his hand. In unison the boys gasped, "Father," for the man with
the lantern in his hand was surely their father, but why he was there was
more than the boys could imagine. Speaking to one of the men, he said
something in a language the boys had never heard.
"Negro et bianco," the man replied. (The Spanish for black and white,
■which was the color of the horse that Mr. Wildwood was to ride.) "All
right, we go at twelve," the man with the lantern said.
"I did not know that father could speak any foreign language except his
school German," said Andy.
"What he can be doing here with this gang gets me," replied Billy.
As soon as the men had gone into the cabin, the boys crawled out from
'their hiding place and started to run home.
When they reached there they were met by their mother who anxiously
asked them about their father. Then they told her all that they had seen.
"Never," she said. "He would never desert his family and stoop to as-
sociate with such men."
"It is very mysterious," said Andy. "Father never had any relatives that
looked like him that I know of."
"That is true,'' his mother replied.
Although the boys tried hard to get their mother to go to bed, she in-
sisted on staying up through the night. After the day's fun and their long
walk, the boys were very tired, so they retired for the night.
At the log cabin, Mr. Wildwood pleaded long and earnestly with his
brother to abandon the robbery, but to no avail. At twelve o'clock after a
simple lunch, the men tied Mr. Wildwood to a couch and rode off. He tried
to remove the cords but to no purpose.
After a time, that seemed hours to him, the robbers returned and has-
tily untied him. They made him walk out of the cabin to a horse upon which
they tied him, and then they all rode off. They took many side roads to
keep from going" through the towns, and after several hours riding, Jim said
that they had crossed the state line over into New Hampshire.
As the eastern sky began to be tinged with gray, they turned into a:
large woods, and after riding into it for some distance they made a camp.
They then tied Mr. Wildwood securely, fed their horses and went to sleep.
The next morning in Fairview, the boys arose early and went to the log
house but found no sign of their father. When they returned home the
whole town was talking about the bank robbery. The boys went to the bank
president, who was a kind man and a great friend of Mr. Wildwood, and
told their story in a straightforward manner. The banker told them it seem-
ed impossible that their father would do a thing like that and that he might
be the victim of a plot.
There was a great hue and cry about the robbery; detectives were
summoned and a description of the men the boys had seen, was printed and
sent all over the New England states. The enemies of the family, of course,
sneered at the idea that Mr. Wildwood was not the robber chief, but their
friends were all very sorry and shook their heads.
One friend of the family offered help in a very substantial way. His
name was Joe Lockwood, a very clever man and a hunter. He told the boys
that the robbers would probably go to Canada and by going on the only road
that ran north they would stand some chance of finding them. The boys
went to the kind banker and told him of Joe's plan, and he thought that it.
was reasonable and offered to furnish help for the trip.
About dark the men in the camp arose and cooked a meal. For the-
first time Jim had a chance to look at the booty. He found several packages-
of bills of large denomination and many small ones. In two sacks were:
coins, the whole amounting to about $18,000.
"Not as big a haul as we had in > — — , Ohio," said one of the men.
"No, but it will last you until you can get back to New York," was Jim "s :
reply. "As for me I am going to set up in business and reform," he said.
Then as evening came on, they all got on their horses and moved north-
ward, on to Canada.
In the afternoon of the day the robbery had been discovered, the boysv-
Joe, the constable of Fairview, and a detective drove out of Fairview in the
banker's automobile. About four o'clock they reached the little town of
— ■ , New Hampshire. Here they stopped for Joe said that the robbers,
would keep under cover in the day time.
As they were going into the small general store to get some crackers
and cheese for their lunch they heard one of the men, who are always hang-
ing around a store, say to a friend : "Something funny happened down our
way last night. One of my horses took sick and as I was going to the barn?
with some medicine I heard some horses trotting, and after I waited a.
minute I saw six men riding horseback, go lickety-split past our place. The
funny part of it is why six men were riding on that lonely road after twa
o'clock at night."
"Yep, it is funny," said another, "don't look good to me."
The party all stopped and listened to this with great interest. Then
the detective spoke to the man: "Say, do you know that the Fairview bank
-was robbed last night?"
This brought all the loungers to their feet. "What!" they all said in
chorus. "Like as not it was them that I saw last night," said the man.
"Likely it was," replied the detective. "There's a reward of five hun-
dred dollars out for the capture of the gang. We were wondering if we
could get any help to capture them, if need be."
''I will for one," shouted the man who had first spoken.
"I will, too," yelled the other man.
"Have you two any firearms?" inquired the detective.
They both answered in the affirmative, and other arrangements were
As soon as it was dark, the robbers and Mr. Wildwood rode off. His
tiorse was led by a strap which another man held. They would have gone
many miles farther on that night if one of the horses had not become lame,
and of course, the party had to stop to examine the horse's foot. It was found
that one of its shoes had become loose and a small stone had lodged under
the shoe. Some time was lost in trying to dislodge the stone and fix the
shoe, during which Jim smoked a cigar, fumed and swore at the luck that
compelled the loss of so much time. After considerable toil, the horse's foot
was in a condition to travel, and the party rode off.
Our pursuing party, which now numbered seven, got into the automo-
bile, and as evening grew near, rode off at high speed. After they had
passed the house in which the man who had seen the robbers, lived, they
came to a crossroads. Joe got out of the automobile and looked at the dust
in the road. "They took the right fork, because I can see the horses' tracks
in the dust," was his comment.
Then they lighted one of their lamps and rode on. As they were speed-
ing along, Joe yelled, "Whoa, quick !" and the detective stopped the machine
with a lurch. Joe jumped out and ran to the front of the machine and with
the aid of a flashlight examined the road with great interest. "I guess w*e
won't have to go much farther," he said.
"Why not?" inquired the party.
"Because," said Joe, "I can see that they had to stop and fix a horse-
shoe. It must have taken some time, because some one smoked a cigar and
left the ashes scattered around."
"Quite a Sherlock Holmes," said the detective with a laugh.
"I ain't trapped and hunted twenty years for nothin'," replied the clever
old hunter. "And say, we had better put out that lamp because you can see
it a mile and those fellows ain't goin' to stand still and let us ride right up
to them," he continued.
"A wise statement," said the detective with a smile. "You certainly
missed your calling."
Following Joe's advice, they extinguished the lamp and started on,
slowly at first for fear of striking something in the dark. After a time they
became accustomed to the darkness, and put on more speed, when Joe, who
sat on the front seat beside the driver, suddenly told him to slow down.
"What is it?" inquired the detective.
"I think I heard horses," replied old Joe.
The detective stopped the machine and listened. "Sure enough," he
said, "I can hear them, too/'
Then our party "sat up and took notice," for they could hear, instead of
retreating sounds, sounds that came nearer. The explanation for this was
that the escaping party started in such haste after the adventure with the
horse that Jim had lost one of the money bags which was contained in a
large leather bag tied to his saddle. The flap on the bag had been un-
fastened by the movements of the horse and one bag of bills was lost. "We
will not go any farther till we get that bag back if we never get to Canada.",
he said. "That top bag had $2,000 in it," he continued, so the party went
back toward the spot where it had been lost.
"We will have to get this auto out of sight before they come,' said Andy
As the country through which they were passing was not very well
farmed, there were not many fences along the road. It was an easy thing
to back the automobile into the woods which lined the road. They all got
out of the machine and taking their firearms, separated. The farmer, Joe
and Andy went to the opposite side of the road, and the detective, the other
farmer and Billy stayed on the side of the road that the machine was on.
The constable went out into the middle of the road with a flashlight and a
revolver. The detective also had a flashlight and a revolver ; the rest of the
men had rifles.
They did not have to wait long because Jim and his party were riding
fast. As they approached, the constable uttered a shrill whistle. "What's
that?" yelled Jim. Only one in his party knew what it was. He had on an-
other occasion been on a hunting expedition and had heard the constable
whistle, the same as this time.
The horses moved a few steps farther on and then the pursuing party-
all yelled, "Hands up!" as loudly as they could, and the flashlights were
thrown on the horsemen. The woods magnified the sound many times and
Jim's party thought there were seventy men instead of seven commanding
them to throw up their hands.
As the flashlights were not thrown on until the party surrendered, the
robbers saw their mistake too late to rectify it. After handcuffing the gang,
the detective took them in the auto to Centerville. Here they were sen-
tenced to five years in the penitentiary.
Jim got out in four years as the result of good behavior. The horses
were sold and the money given to Jim when he was free. He went West,
homesteaded a claim and now owns the land.
Soon after the adventure, Air. Wildwood was appointed president of the
bank. The boys are still living and working in Fairview, and here we will
leave them in their prosperity.
®t|p pmtprr ^rljoola nf Angola
By A. W. LONG
The real wealth of Angola does not consist entirely in the railroads
centering here — in the number of pounds of beef, pork and poultry shipped to
eastern markets ; in her great department stores, filled with every thing that
heart could wish or money buy ; nor in the miles of paved streets lined with
magnificent buildings — but rather in the intelligence of her citizens and in
the general diffusion of useful knowledge. In the latter things, Angola is.
rich indeed !
"For can the wiles of Art, the grasp of Power,
Snatch the rich relics of a well spent hour.
These — when the trembling spirit takes its flight —
Pour round its path a stream of living light."
With uncovered head I go back in memory to the sturdy pioneers of
Angola, to whose early struggles and devotion to the cause of education we
owe the privileges we now enjoy — to the devoted men and women who
fairly worked their finger nails off, in order to secure to their children the
discipline of mind which they had, in many cases, been deprived of by force
of circumstances. All honor to those heroic pioneers who made these things
possible to the present generation. From the schools which their patient
foresight established have gone forth into the world about us, men and
women, so well trained and disciplined that they have become well known
state wide, nation wide and even world wide ! So inadequate were the pub-
lic funds to equip the needed schools that the pioneers eagerly subscribed
and paid for private or "select" schools as they were generally called, located
in various public or private buildings, viz: the Eagle hotel; in the "Buck-
eye" building where the Work block now stands ; in the Darrah home on
West Maumee street ; in the house where Will Elston now lives ; in a house
on the Felah Parish lot, and in the old Ben Brown building on the north side
of the public square wdiere now stands the Williamson Hardware store.
The first public school building was a typical log structure on the spot
where the Joseph Sowle residence now stands, erected in 1840. But the
public school building of that time, around which most memories cluster —
which so many of the aged people of Angola kindly remember as their only
"Alma Mater" — was a frame structure built about 1853, on the top of the-
hill which has since been graded down and carted away to accommodate
the building used by the Angola Wood Manufacturing Co., and other struc-
tures, northwest of the public square. In the foregoing public and private
schools, the boys and girls of the period were educated. Here taught with
more or less patience and varying success, Miss Lucy Jackson, Miss Hendry.,
(a sister of A. W. Hendry,) Miss McKinstre, Miss Faxton, the Misses
Maria, Sophia and Cynthia Kitridge, Miss Spaulding, Mrs. Asa Tinker, Miss
Felah Parish, Miss Carl, Miss Woodworth, Mr. Blake, Mr. Eagles, Fredrick
Newbauer, Johnathan Dudley, Lyman Heath, (afterward County Auditor,)
Addison Blass, Benjamin Saylor, J. Wesley Thomas, James Scoville and
others whose names and services have been forgotten. In this little, old,
weather-beaten and boy-battered "school house on the hill" was born our
splendid graded system of schools! The building fronted to the southward,
?.nd at the north end an addition was built in i860 to accommodate the little
"lots" of the first "Primary Department" of the Angola schools. J. Wesley
Thomas was teaching the "High school," and Miss Cynthia Kitridge the
Primary when the building burned in February, 1864. Evans Mathews,
sent out after wood to replenish the big box stove, discovered that the root
was on fire and gave the alarm. Those boys and girls had never been
taught a "Fire Drill." They simply "got out" through windows and doors
and no one was hurt. Miss May Weicht, a child of five years, forgot, in her
haste, a dear little red woolen bonnet and when the building was about,
ready to collapse, dashed back into the flames and rescued it. No "Siren''
shrieked its "wild alarm" and no magnificent fire brigade would have re-
sponded if it had, but the whole town turned out with brimming pails of
water and valiently guarded the Bob Squiers livery barn across the street.
And now I come to (for me) the pleasant part of this sketch — the visits
I have enjoyed with, and the stories told me by, the "boys and girls" of that
period. Most of those fun loving boys are now found in the ranks of our
"old soldier boys," the heroes of many a bloody battle for the Union. A few
of the girls still live as the aged mothers of a rapidly growing city. All for-
get, for a moment, the roar of battle and the sorrows and trials of life and
with kindly faces wreathed in smiles or chuckling with the joy of memory
they recount to me the "good times" they had in those pioneer schools of
Angola. Most of the incidents related to me were luminous and pleasant
in character, but some, alas! were tragic, for some of those pioneer teachers
evidently believed with "Bill Jones" of the "Hoosier Schoolmaster," that
"Lickin' and Larnin' go together." One of these teachers, forwearned con-
cerning the husky bad boys of the school, was seen approaching the school
house on the morning of the first session of a certain term with a bundle of
whips under one arm and a few books under the other. "Mister," inquired
a philosophic resident of the neighborhood, "do ye 'low T to tote them gads
into that school?" "Certainly," responded the teacher, "and I shall use
them, too, if necessary." "Wall, stranger, ye'll last about as long as a snow-
ball in H ! I know them boys and gals," the old resident replied. The
prediction was verified. That bundle of whips became a standing challenge
to the boys of the school and were soon worn out. Then a large rawhide
took their place, coiled up like a snake on the teacher's desk when not in
action. During the afternoon recess of the first day of its appearance it was
stolen. And by a girl pupil ! Then the teacher delivered a stern ultimatum.
"Every pupil in the school will receive a whipping, on general principles,
unless the culprit is exposed or the whip returned by tomorrow morning'"
It was returned within the time limit, but was cut into pieces one inch in
length by James Carpenter and Oscar Carver. Then war began at once,
and the big boys, led by Dell Day, drove the teacher from the room, but he
locked the door from the outside and went after help, determined to con-
quer or die. At Ed Freygang's suggestion the imprisoned pupils threw up
or broke out the windows and fled to the protection of "Home and Mother."
When the irate teacher returned with his "posse" there was no one left to
lick. George Young was easily his mother's favorite boy, and while a mus-
cular teacher was giving George a severe "scutching" for some misde-
meanor, James Weaver sprang out of an open window and notified Mrs.
Young! It took her but a moment to reach the school house and snatching
the whip from the teacher's hand she laid it about his legs in a way that
indicated both faith and practice. Another teacher with more muscle than
sense, becoming: incensed at some mischievous act of fat, rosy-cheeked, good
natured Ed Fitch, caught the lad up in his brawn}' arms and threw him up
to the ceiling of the room several times, allowing him to fall sprawling to
the floor each time, bruising the boy badly. But the father of the boy, one
of the most powerful men in town, rolled up his sleeves and left his work
long enough to prove himself also an adept in the new game of "pitch and
toss" to the complete discomfiture of the schoolmaster! Orville Carver, the
first mayor of Angola, naively confesses to a severe application of the ruler
to Geo. Orton, Carl Gale and himself by teacher Addison Blass, because of
imperfect lessons, and Heman Carpenter is still chuckling about a pocket-
ful of hollow reeds gathered down northeast of the square near the flowing
springs, fifty years ago, and distributed among the pupils of James Scovilie.
Then, when the teacher's attention was drawn elsewhere, with unerring
aim and a quick impulse of breath through these improvised air guns, the
teacher received a "spat" of still warm and moist paperwad on some part
of his face. The best marksmen could hit the side of his nose. Happy,
rolicking, care free, fun loving boys and girls, God bless them, for there
could be no school without them, and the only reason that we have better
boys and girls now in our public schools, lies in the fact that teachers are
learning how to appeal to the better natures of the lads and lassies in their
charge and thereby win the respect and affection of their pupils. In the year
1802, George W. McConnell, A. W. Hendry and Thos. B. Morse — three of
the most public-spirited men that Angola has ever known — secured the ser-
vices of John W. Cowen, a graduate of Waynesburg College, Pennsylvania,
and. Miss Mary A. Cooley, graduate of Oberlin College, and organized a
school in the old "Bee Hive" building which stood on the spot where now
we have the Hendry Hotel, and called it the "Union Seminary." From this
point on there has been a steady advance in the excellence of our public
schools, and they will now compare very favorably — teachers, pupils, build-
ings and equipment — with any in the state.
EBER J.EFFERY, '14
"Well, Chuck, I enjoy this sort of life and I don't suppose I will change
my manner for some little time. But say, by the way, Old Man, we've
both stuck right here in town, drudging away all summer, and 1 propose
that we seek some little diversion before we become a pair of physical
wrecks and have to be shipped to the mountains to spend the winter in a
"I rather approve of your suggestion, although I have no apprehen-
sion of becoming an invalid inside of the next few weeks."
This conversation took place between two young men walking along-
a main thoroughfare of Chicago, one day late in the summer of '1906. The
previous conversation had been a discussion as to whether or not the young
man, who speaks first in the story, should turn away from the sordid
pleasures afforded him by a life of moderate dissipation. This young man.
known to his friends as Cap, was Casper Sebright, a University graduate
of the class of '04. He was now the head office man of a large wholesale
firm, and for his services received a very good salary which was spent very
largely for unseemly amusements and clothes. Often he was tempted to
spend his time at the roulette wheels of the city's gambling resorts, or stake
his all on a favorite at the races. But usually he had just enough sense to
withstand these temptations. He appeared to be a very attractive young
The other man, Gordon Young, by name, but familiarly known as
"Chuck," was inclined to be slightly more conservative than his friend, al-
though he was just as enthusiastic a lover of good sport. He also held a
lucrative position as a department superintendent in a large manufacturing-
"I have an idea," exclaimed Cap as the conversation continued. "I've
got a good friend who is out West now who is the best dopester on the
scrap game or base ball in the country. His tips and inside dope never f at j .
I propose that we go to Goldfield next week and accept the 'kid's' judgment
as gospel and accordingly place most of our surplus cash on the big scrap."
"Now, see here Cap, you know I never was much of a hand at the
betting game, and it's too late to start in now ."
"Better late than never," interrupted Sebright.
"But you know that I always was the unluckiest chap alive."
"That kind of luck is impossible in this case because the Kid is right
on the ground at the training quarters every day and is able to form uner-
ring conclusions as to the condition of both men. We can rely with absolute
certainty upon what he tells us. Now don't say, 'where is the money com-
ing from?' because I know what an old miser you are; and Em just lucky
enough to have received last week a hunk of cash for insurance on a little
piace in the country for which Dad gave me the deed when I was a kid. A
shorl time ago a couple of toughs did me a favor by setting fire to it."
In the face of these convincing arguments it was decided that these two
men should spend their vacation on a trip to Goldfield, Nevada, to see Joe
Gans defend his lightweight title against the onslaught of Battling Nelson,
Thev were to arrive in Goldfield on the day of the big battle.
"There he is now! Come here, Spike, and meet my friend, known in
the higher circles by a more stately title, but to us as 'Chuck.' Chuck this
is the 'Kid.' Xow out with the dope. Spike, and we'll go to the nearest
pool room and place all we have but the admission fee, on the man you
The person whom Cap thus addressed as Spike was a small, well-
dressed, sporty-looking man. He appeared to be younger than he was. His
face was rather bovish and the big, blue eyes had a rather innocent look.
From under his cap showed a mass of wavy brown hair. In general his
appearance was not that of the usual ringside or race track "swipe."
"Bovs." he replied, "I don't like to say it, but you have got to bet on
the colored man if you want to win. I've watched him a long time and he's
got a defense that the 'boring in' tactics of the Dane can never batter down.
Besides, the man doesn't live that can stand up long against that terrible
jaw-breakin' wallop or kidney punch of his."
A rather discouraged trio of young men sat at the ringside at the close
of the twenty-sixth round. Time and again the clever negro had landed
that famous jaw-breaker, but the Durable Dane ahvays came back the ag-
gressor. Gans had abandoneel his wonderful defense and was slugging it
out with the Battler. This disheartened the Chicago men, for it was well
known throughout sporting circles that no man could last long in a slug-
ging match with the Hegewisch lad. At last, after hours of fierce fighting,
in that far-famed forty-second round, Xelson landed just below the belt a
terrific body punch and the negro sank slowly to the mat. The gallant little
Battler hung his head and crawled slowly through the ropes, a loser on a
The next morning on an east-bound train, Cap said to his friend :.
"Well, cheer up. old man; you've seen a great fight and won'a little money.
We've not been to a funeral."
"Cap, I was just thinking what we are doing. The way we spend our
time and money renders us of no use. W T e don't amount to anything and — "
"Well, now," retorted Cap, "don't moralize. We may be in need of a.
sermon but I don't believe you're in condition to deliver it."
"I'm not going to preach but I am going to tell you how we can pull
oft" a deal and go into business with success just running after us."
The subject of money interested young Sebright, and he began to
"But," continued Gordon, "it can never catch us if we keep chasing
cigarettes, booze and the fighting game- W r e hardly realize without thought
on the matter that we should be of value to the world, but surely there is
■something better in us than continuous association with booze — fighters
gamblers and the class of people that usually attend such events as we have
just witnessed. You say, 'Oh, they are all good fellows/ but how would you
like to take one of these associates, such as this Spike, home with you to
your sister's party and have him accompany her regularly to the ball room
or the theatre?"
Oh! So it's Irene that you're worrying about. I thought you must
have a lady on your mind. Well, I'll admit, Gord, that I wouldn't feel ex-
actly happy if that little girl were in the parlor with the Kid. No, Chuck,
I guess he's not exactly our kind and I guess he probably won't ruin your
•chances with Irene, and yet ."
"No," said a voice from behind, "I'm not your kind, but what I have
to say I tell a fellow to his face." Spike stepped in front of the two aston-
ished young men, anger and emotion showing on his usually expressionless
face. "Fellows, I was going to get sore," he said hesitatingly, "but I guess
you're right. I suppose I ain't exactly your kind. But I once had a father
and mother, a sister and a start towards an education. But father and I had
a disagreement about the class of social affairs I attended. We quarreled:
I left home and have never returned. The first job I had was helping the
ground keeper over at the West Side ball park. I became pretty well posted
on the game, seeing both games and practice, and I also got a pretty good
line on all of the players. I was then able to pick up a little change by
betting and advising others how to bet. Using my knowledge of players
and a little judgment, things usually came my way. There came to be
many sporting men among my friends. In fact it was not long until most
of my associates were of this class. Through their influence I became in-
terested in the fight game that fall. I followed this pretty closely and soon
l>egan to make a little money in the same way I did at the ball park.
Again, through the influence of friends, I became an ardent follower of the
racing game. You see I've secured my money always by gambling. But,
boys, I'm done. All you won yesterday and all I won was won on a fluke.
The little Dane had the colored gent out-fought and put him away with thai
last punch, which was misjudged and landed a trifle low. I've had my luck
go against me and lose for me, but to win on a fluke is a bad sign. li
shows poor judgment. As you say, I can't go among respectable people of
a higher class and hold up my head because of my profession if my occupa-
tion may be known by that term. I reckon I'll try to make different use
of the money I have now. I believe I can do something else." The Kid
arose and left the two young men alone again.
"That Spike," said Sebright, "will make something of himself yet. A
man that's got the stuff in him to succeed as a gambler, can succeed in hon-
orable business if he applies himself. I tell you that Kid has ability. I
wish I knew his name. I don't suppose he knows mine, though. But you
watch and some time you'll hear of him again."
Chuck laughed and said : "There's just about one in ten thousand of
those fellows that ever reforms. "
"Well, then, Spike is just that one of the ten thousand, for when he
says he'll do a thing, he will do it. But how about that plan of yours for
"I figure just this way, Cap. If I could get into some substantial busi-
ness for myself I could perhaps make a little more money and possibly if
I were not where that pretty sister of yours saw me so often she would
think of me in a more serious light. Now I know of a first-class hardware
in a small down-state town that can be bought right. There is already a
good business there and you know that the public patronizes young people
in preference to the old timers, if the management is good. People here wi-1
say we're too young for business, but I don't see how we will improve our
business abilities by sticking aroung here and blowing our salaries for a
few more years."
"If you're sure that this is a good thing and money in it, I'm on. I'd
like to show the old folks I've got some ambition, anyway."
"Good thing!" exclaimed Gordon. "Why it's just like getting money
from home ■ — "
"When they don't send it," Cap added. "But I guess the money might
as well go into the hardware as into the tailors' and saloon-keepers' pockets."
Four years had passed. The two young men had prospered in the hard-
ware business, which had been enlarged and improved since it became the
firm of Young & Sebright. Although Gordon had failed to' make his de-
sired serious impression upon Miss Sebright, ho was still an intimate friend
of' the family. A steady correspondence was carried on between Young
and Sebright and the family in Chicago.
One afternoon in June, 1910, Casper said to 'his partner, "Chuck, T re-
ceived a letter from my mother this morning and she has news for us,
Irene is to be married next Wednesday ■ ."
'■ L "We 11 ;\I can't help it," interrupted Gordon, soberly.
Cap laughed and continued: "It's to be a quiet little wedding at onr
home; but according to the import of the letter an event to which we are
absolutely essential. Something indefinite but terrible will happen to me
if I do not bring you home with me next Tuesday night."
Young thought it was not a good plan for both of them to leave the
business at one time, but after some urging he said: "Rather than lose my
partner or have him permanently disabled, I suppose I had better go, but
it's mighty poor business policy. By the way, who's to be the bridegroom?"
"O, the same fellow she's been corresponding with for the last year.
He's the new partner to the Coombs & Kilrain Company, wholesalers of
heavy hardware, of whom we buy all of our iron and steel. The last time
I was up to the city, 'George' was the only subject of Irene's conversation.
I wanted to meet him but my train left before he could possibly get around.
Probably he's a young 'swell' whose 'papa' has bought and runs for
him a share in a business while he loafs at the club or takes exercise in the
park." This was spoken in the usual attitude of brothers who, when it
comes to marriage, think that no fellow in the world is good enough for their
When Gordon and his friend arrived in the city Tuesday night, Casper
said: "Mother told me Kilrain's address. Let's look him up, approach
him from a business standpoint and find out what sort of a chap lie is.*'
"All right," Chuck answered, "I should like to see him before tomorrow
Kilrain's address was found at a small but respectable hotel. As tin
two m^n entered the office a familiar face caught Cap's eye and he rushed
across the room and shook hands with a rather young looking man with
big blue eyes and brown wavy hair.
"Well, how's the Old Timer anyway?" exclaimed Chuck as he also
"Doing fine," answered the young man, "but perhaps changed a little
along the line of business since we last met."
"Now, see here Spike, you don't mean to hand it to us that you've gone
to work?" said Cap.
"Yes, fellows, I'll have to admit it. I'm actually in business; that, is
I'm in partnership with a fellow in a small wholesale house."
"Why don't you give us your card and we'll drop in tomorrow and
have a little talk," said Chuck.
"Well, the truth is, boys, I have a little engagement outside of business
that will require most of ray time tomorrow, but here's our business carcL
Drop in some other time."
Cap read with bewildering astonishment :

THE A. H. S. AS A SOCIAL CENTER
Progressive communities are opening their school houses for social ac-
tivities, thus giving parents and pupils of all classes an opportunity to meet
on a common level. It has proved so successful in both city and country
that it might be well worth trying in Angola. The school building belong-?
to the people who are taxed for its maintenance. Why are they not entitled
to use it for other than school purposes?
The past year school has been held for one hundred eighty days of six
hours each, and the remaining one hundred eighty-five days of the three hun-
dred sixty-five it has been idle. Why not open the door evenings and pro-
vide a profitable and pleasant entertainment for young and old? Why not
make the school house, under the direction of chaperons, more attractive
than the streets? Why not make it a social center that will be as popular
l:s the pool rooms and bowling alley? Why not give the boys and girls of
Angola what a little boy in Rochester calls "a party in the school house
wdiere you can get something for nothing?" "Where there is a will, there i*
a way." Organize, then ways and means may be devised to make at small
cost the Angola High School a delightful social center.
One cold morning early in March, all was quiet and peaceful in the As-
sembly room. Every one was in deep thought over lessons, and even the
notes had ceased to buzz around.
A faint stir was heard in the lower caverns, then a door-slam, followed
'by some one rushing up the creaking- stairs. Like a Hash the form of a
woman appeared. Our blood curdled as she shouted: "Help! A man! A
a«ian ! Oh do find me a man! Quick, I must have him!"
Well, as usual, "it pays to advertise," and now it is Mrs. Prough.
All of the illustrations appearing in this edition of the Spectator, are the
"work of students now in the A. 11. S., with exception of the Alumni drawing,
which was kindly contributed by Miss Martha Pollock. The other artists
were Floy Hammond, Donald Sheldon, Blanche Coy, Harry Gilmore, Agness
Pollock, Ralph Elston, Arline Goodwin, Paul Coy, Jeanette Pollock, Lois
Redding, Ellen Moss, Maud Harmon, Bernice Ramsay, Bess Coleman,
Alarjorie Kunkle and Laura Brunson.
In November, 191 1, there was organized a Parliamentary Law class by
Mr. Letts. This class has now been in the school for a period of four years
and has proven to be one of the most popular and profitable classes.
The work is outlined as follows : The first part of the year is given over
to a thorough study of the text, while the last part of the year is devoted to
The workings of the State and National legislatures are also studied.
Two lectures are also given by the instructor, explaining the methods of the
English Parliament. All class officers are required to either be in this class
or to have had the work. One-half of a credit is given upon a successful
completion of the course.
This year more than any previous year lias been one of unusual social
pleasure for the whole High School. The Seniors have enjoyed more par-
ties than any other class, although the Sophomores have proved thai they
have a vague idea of how to enjoy themselves, and the Freshmen have been
striving- manfully to keep up the record. The juniors, however, have almost
given H]) hope on account of lack of sufficient members <>l the sterner sex.
The Freshmen, usually very shy, this year have discarded a consider-
able amount of their bashfulness and have entered society to a limited ex-
tent. Although they have had but one social function, which was a sleigh-
ing party to the home of Robert Cole, we hope they have had enough en-
joyment to make their first year in H. S. one never to be forgotten.
The Sophomores, however, have proved themselves one of our promi-
nent society classes. Late in the fall, Gertrude Ingalls entertained at a
bonfire party. Later on, Fern Cole was a charming hostess to the class at
a farewell party for their classmate, Weir Morse, who left for Oklahoma to
be gone indefinitelv. Hallowe'en was duly celebrated by the Sophs and a
few invited friends, when Jeanette Pollock and Lois Redding entertained at
a masquerade party at the hitter's home. The class, not ready to give up
their good time for a while, planned a neat surprise on their friend, Mildred
Hanselman, at the invitation of her mother. Everyone will remember that
evening as one of great enjoyment.
The juniors have been in school long enough to know how much social
functions add to their daily life, but em account of having only three boys in
the class, they have had but one party which was at the home of Mrs. John
Castell. We are in hope that next year a reinforcement of the masculine
gender will enter the class anel spare them the sorrow of going through their
last year of High School without any social life to make it more pleasant.
The Seniors seem to realize how much pleasure a class can get out of
school life when it does not stop at bad weather and poor sleighing. Early
in the fall, the class enjoyed a straw ride to the country home of Helen
Rummel. During the winter they had nothing much but sleighing parties.
Rose Kohl was a delightful hostess to the class at her home in the country.
We are uncertain whether it was the long distance or the good time which
made them get home so late (or early). The class with a few invited friends
also enjoyed a sleigh riele to Mr. and Mrs. John Smith's, near Ashley. This
ride will not be forgotten for two reasons: the grand time, and the tipping
over of the bob when they came home. It was several minutes before the
members of the crowd could be located and replaced in the bob. Lloyd. Wil-
son was a pleasing host, also, to the class one night during sleighing time,
at his country home near Flint. On this occasion, Prof, and Mrs. George
Letts were invited as chaperons. On March 17, the Senior girls proved
themselves delightful hostesses to the Senior boys at a Progressive St.
Patrick's party, which began at the home of Agness Pollock and ended in an
enjoyable finale at the home of Zema Crampton.
There has been a great number of inter-class parties, at the homes of
